THE TRUE PARENTS WAY LIBRARY OF ARTICLES

TRUE PARENTS' LEADERSHIP TODAY

Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon was born 23 years after her husband, and he has pre-deceased her. In the early 1990s he declared her the co-founder of the movement. True Parents shared leadership continues with True Father in Heaven and True Mother on earth. It’s what we call the “age of the wife.”

THE HOLY ITEMS

On the 56th anniversary of the True Parents’ Blessing, True Mother distributed sacraments of the Blessing for all humankind, called Holy Items. These, like the Christian sacraments, bestow grace, including forgiveness, incorporation into the body of Christ, and holy matrimony. They bestow the power to separate from Satan, receive the original love of God and live as one family under God eternally. Study the Holy Items in this series of eight articles.

BEGOTTEN OF GOD

Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, our True Mother, has declared she is God’s only begotten Daughter. What does this mean? Is this new, or is it something Rev. Moon taught?

This series of twelve articles explores these questions and finds some surprising answers—including about our eternal life, not just in Heaven.
